Plantar fasciitis stretches – The Injured Runner

what is plantar fasciitis?

Under the skin on the sole of your foot is some tough connective tissues, called the plantar fascia.

When you get plantar fasciitis it becomes painful to put your foot on the ground. Pain is usually in the heel and is worse when you wake up in the morning or walk barefoot.

Plantar fasciitis stretches

With one hand grasp your toes and pull them back until you feel tightening along the bottom of your foot. Use the heel of your other hand to massage the band along the bottom of your foot attempting to bend this taught band. Use enough pressure to feel that it is distinctly being worked. Continue for two to five minutes. This is especially good before getting out of bed or at the end of the day.
